Just wondering how others revise effectively for Science given that there is so much content to learn this year for GCSE! Past papers; Spec; CGP books - what is your method? Let me know. Thanks.

Use an app called Tassomai (you have to pay but it's good).
Get revision guides.
And Free Science Lessons (youtube) really helped me improve my grades by two levels.

When going through the CGP books / spec, always right yourself questions, flashcards on key words etc so that frequently you can go back and test yourself. The more you test, the more you'll remember I promise! Just ends up so engrained in your memory, that the quantity of learning no longer becomes an issue..
There are sites like quizlet where you can find online tests and make your own, so worth setting some time each day or two to do there. even just 15 minutes very beneficial!
Or Seneca Learning also releasing a free GCSE resources platform - it combines testing and understanding, and contains all of the syllabus as exam-board specific. Think that coming out soon but you can sign up for early access
Besides those, I think worth just making a revision timetable and sticking to it very closely, and with that the amount of content becomes less daunting and more manageable..

Personally, I used mindmaps and lots of past paper questions and questions from revision guides.
Also, there are lots of great revision videos on YouTube which are worth a look
